And now even if you don't speak Russian now you can still sing along in Russian thanks to a lyrics file provided by a fellow comrade. You will first need to be playing your MP3s with winamp and then you will need this winamp plugin. Once you have all that set up then this is the lyrics file, one of the buttons in the plugin will display the lyrics in karaoke format while the music plays.

I have no idea if this works with the newest version of winamp or not, obviously we cannot accept any responsibility for it not working or messing up your computer etc.(!)
